Android is such a good operating system because of its ecosystem that gives freedom to do customization in anything. Here, you could almost tweak anything you want including from the theme, setting, performance, and even installing of custom ROM. Doing those things will give better look to our phone and even improve its performance.
Installing custom ROM is a good thing to do here for some reasons. Here, there are so many good alternatives Rom to install in the device, but LineageOS is probably the most popular one for now among the developer and users. This ROM is built on the top of stock Android with so many customizations that comes from the developer’s idea and community request. LineageOS should be tried by anyone looking for performance here because the system is free without any bloatware and the stock look is cleaner in comparable that we see on most devices right now.
There should be good reasons for someone to try a new thing. Because of that reason we are going to talk about what kind of good things we get from it. That is what we are going to talk about here. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s jump into the article.
We basically need to wait for some months and even a year before the company rolling their system update. It should be good to wait here because we will get an official update here. But, it would be another reason for devices that do not get any future update. This is where Lineage is popular among the users. It provides most up to date Android with stock look experience. You are going to find some additional tweaks and settings here, but they still put Google’s interface. The tweaks are just additional things and do not break its interface or the experience.
This will be the biggest reason why people have to jump into it. For trying it, make sure you go into their website and find out if your device is supported. If you find the device in the list, then you are in the right way here. Just follow the guide they have in the website and you are going to be okay.
Privacy Guard is a great feature since we are able to control app permission to our needs. This gives us much freedom on keeping our privacy by limiting their access into the system. Just decide anything that they can access such as location, camera, contacts and many more. This feature is created base on similar feature that called as App Ops.
Privacy Guard will show us the notification the app with blocked permission. Here, it tells us if the application is running good or not. If the application runs not well, they would ask you to re-enable it from the setting. Just try it and see how it works.
The “Interface” tweak in the setting is coming with some great customization. It’s packed with status bar, notification drawer, navigation bar, and quick setting panel tweaks. For example, we can reorder the buttons on the navigation bar or adding more options toggle in the status bar. You are giving freedom to do anything to the interface.
The status bar panel also includes of brightness control which is good because we do not need to go the setting for just reduce or add brightness. Just sliding your panel and that is what you need here. It’s a great way for brightness control access.
This is probably the best feature that I love here because I could add in-display buttons without need to use of my hardware buttons. The customization is also great where you can see many settings and tweaks. For example, just set the long button press if you want to access the music easily. This is a great solution for accessing the app easily.
You are going to find another option such as keyboard cursor control panel for easier typing on the touch screen and many more. I recommend you to try it and you should be surprised by its great features.
Those are my recommendation about it. LineageOS can be a good alternative for anyone who is getting tired with the look on their device. Both performance and look are great, so there is no big problem here. Well, it backs on you on deciding everything, so just get it when you are ready. I just hope the information is useful for you. Thank you very much and see you again next time.
